Jim Rome on SHOWTIME returns for its second season tomorrow, Wednesday, in front of a studio audience with guests Ice Cube, Floyd "Money" Mayweather, Ronda Rousey, Dhani Jones and Dr. Harry Edwards. The episode premieres at 9 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME.
Media mogul, actor and rapper Ice Cube sits down with Rome for a one-on-one interview to give his thoughts on current sports and entertainment topics including the L.A. Lakers, the Oakland Raiders, and his new album.
Coming together in a free forum discussion, the first female UFC champion Ronda Rousey, noted sports sociologist Dr. Harry Edwards, and former NFL star Dhani Jones join Rome to debate cheating, sex and religion, and how all three play such a large role in today's sporting world.
Plus, undefeated, eight-time world champion boxer Floyd "Money" Mayweather joins the program via satellite to tackle Rome's 10 Questions segment. Mayweather recently announced a unique, groundbreaking revenue-sharing arrangement with Showtime Networks Inc. and its parent company, CBS Corporation. He returns to the ring May 4 to face Robert Guerrero in "May Day: Mayweather vs. Guerrero" produced and distributed live by Showtime PPV.
When Rome asks Mayweather what the one thing is that he won't mess with, Mayweather responds, "A married woman." To which Rome replies, "Good answer. Good policy."
